the video in question today. new york republican peter king joins me and california democrat adam schiff. congressman king, you were in that briefing today. you saw the surveillance, the drone video recovered from the benghazi compound. is there anything about what you saw today that changes your assessment of the situation? because you have been a tough critic of the administration. >> yeah, not really the video. i didn't see much controversial about the video. maybe adam will disagree. i thought it was objective. i don't think it really answered the questions either side would have had. my objection was that contrary to what dana said, the democrats were saying, one democrat said, i try not to make it partisan, i don't believe the talking points given to susan rice obtained all the intelligence the intelligence community had. without going into detail, there were several reports clearly stating that al qaeda affiliated groups were involved in the attack and were very heavily involved in the attack and that did not make it into the talking points, did not make it into the final talking
